Vidrala is committed to sustainability and believes that glass is one of the most sustainable packaging materials available. Glass is 100% recyclable and manufactured from widely available natural resources through non-polluting production processes. As the world has become more conscious of consumption habits and packaging has come under scrutiny, Vidrala has seized the opportunity to provide more sustainable packaging options.
The packaging industry is critical to achieving a circular economy in Europe – currently the industry has a recycling rate of 76% and the goal is to reach 90% by 2030. Additionally, Vidrala is committed to supporting the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with a particular focus on affordable and clean energy, decent work and economic growth, responsible consumption and production, climate action and partnerships to reach these goals.
While Vidrala has been at the forefront of boosting sustainability in its own sector, the company is looking for opportunities to make an even greater impact – beyond its industry.
